I is an upcoming Indian Tamil romantic action thriller film in which actor Vikram plays the lead role. The movie is written and directed by Shankar and according to The Times of India, Shankar opted for this title ‘I’ as he thought it “explains all the characteristics of the protagonist”; the word has a variety of meanings, which include “king, beauty, astonishment, guru, vulnerability, owner and arrow”.
Vikram and Amy Jackson plays the lead roles in the film along with Suresh Gopi , Upen Patel and Santhanam in supporting roles. The film is produced and distributed by Venu Ravichandran under his production banner, Aascar Films. The original songs and background score is composed by A R Rahman. Weta Workshop worked on the digital make-up and background arts for the film.
The film was made on a mega-sized budget of INR 1.85 billion (US $31 million), making it the costliest Indian film to date. The filming lasted for two years and eight months, during which shooting was done extensively in China. With further schedules filmed in Chennai, Bangkok, Jodhpur, Kodaikanal, Pollachi, Bangalore and Mysore. The film is scheduled for release on Diwali 2014.
In the film, actor Vikram plays the main character called ‘Lingeswaran’. Arnold Schwarzenegger is a role model to him and Lingeswaran’s only aim in life is to win the Mr. Madras title. Director Shankar had crafted the hair style of Vikram by referencing Arnold Schwarzenegger’s front curl look. As per director Shankar, among all get-ups in the film, the ‘Koonan’ (hunchbacked man) character was the most difficult one to sketch. A major part of the film will have actor Vikram sporting his hunchbacked look. Amy Jackson plays the role of a model in the film. Shankar wanted someone who could authentically looks like a model and hence, fixed Amy Jackson.
